One year after opening its doors in the Jamestown community, Five Star Urgent Care recently officially became part of the network with Univera Healthcare for commercial and Medicare Advantage members.
Additionally, the facility is welcoming all Jamestown Convenience Care patients after the Jamestown Convenience Center closed.
"Five Star Urgent Care has had an incredible first year serving Jamestown and the surrounding areas, and we continually strive not only provide the best, most affordable urgent care available, but also to be as inclusive as possible for anyone who is seeking care," said Dr. John Radford, founder and owner of Five Star Urgent Care. "It was extremely important to us to expand our insurance coverage and provide Univera patients with a more easy and affordable visit."
Five Star's in-network coverage with Univera began March 15. Other insurances accepted at Five Star include: United, Blue Cross Blue Shield, AETNA, Empire, Independent Health, Nova, POMCO, RMSCO, and ELMCO. Community members are encouraged to call Five Star with any insurance questions.
Additionally, Five Star Urgent Care will be providing health booths at various events held at the Jamestown Savings Bank Arena throughout the upcoming year.
"Our health booths at the arena will feature our practitioners offering various health services such as free blood pressure readings," Radford said. "We're very much looking forward to meeting more of the community members and speaking with them on a more personal level about their health questions and how we can help them. Additionally, Five Star will be handing out free T-shirts from time to time. We're excited about the sponsorship, and hope to have a lot of fun with the community."
Located in the Riverwalk Center on South Main Street in Jamestown, Five Star Urgent Care is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays. For more information, call 489-3144 or visit www.fivestaruc.com.
